Safety Redirector PRO 220.127.116.11-signed No Restart
In short: SafetyRedirector is an important part to your computer's overall security. Anti-virus programs work only AFTER you've been infected. SafetyRedirector PREVENTS the initial infection from happening!
About this Add-on
What does Safety Redirector do and why do you need it?
Imagine you're on the world wide web, minding your own business. Suddenly an AD appears, by accident you click it (OHHH NOOOOO!) it brings you to a website hosted in Asia and now you have 35 toolbars installed and an application warning you to update your "security" settings.
How does this happen? There are TONS of bad websites out there in the world, we protect you from there. Working at the browser level, should you attempt to unknowingly visit a known malware site (lets say GIVEMEAVIRUS.COM) our extension will kill the connection immediately.
Why is this good? Your browser or computer never actually connects to the bad website.
If you accidentally click on an ad to a known bad website, we'll block it!
The plugin checks for updates (from us) every 24 hours. You can manually check for updates by clicking the icon that is created after installation. Become part of the fastest growing network of SafetyRedirector Users!
To create your own collections, you must have a Mozilla Add-ons account.
During normal browsing with this extension installed, unless SafetyRedirector Protection Network is enabled, no data is sent anywhere. Safe Site Location lookups are done via an internal storage of known bad sites fetched from our server upon browser launch. Lookups for each page are done via a single hit to the local cache and the Safety Redirector internal database.

Safety Redirector provides access to many external web services using Safety Redirector "actions", some of which are available by default and others can be added or created by you.
